Lex Balladon is a professional wakeboarder from England who has spent the past 17yrs riding cable parks around the world; she has also been ranked in the top six female wake boarders in the UK for the duration of her competitive career, and is the current Masters National Champion.
Lex’s passion is coaching Ladies Mornings and Girls Days around the country and has been doing so for the best part of a decade. She is constantly striving to spread the word of wakeboarding to as many girls and women as possible. This has led to Wake Daze being born, days filled with wakeboarding, yoga and loads more.
If you want to get into wakeboarding then Lex is your girl! She’s a BWSW Level 3 Wakeboard Coach who coaches privately and also works with the BWSW, coaching the GB Squad on their fantastic Development Camp scheme.
Lex is a mother of two extremely adventurous little boys who keep her on her toes, but that doesn’t stop her from getting on the water for some playtime to take a break from motherhood. She will also find time to shoot and film with her sponsors and always endeavours to get the shot!
Something that Lex works extremely hard on is her fitness. After having two children, she doesn’t take her body for granted and is very much into health and fitness. “I feel that heathly living goes hand in hand with what I do really. I have to be fit to run around after my kids and also to wakeboard! When it comes to diet, I just try to avoid eating anything that is processed and eat as healthily as I possibly can.”
If you didn’t know Lex, now you do. She an all round shredder on and off the water. If you can’t find her at a lake, she’ll most likely be off somewhere looking for waves to surf!
